Designing public spaces well is a central task for city planners and landscape architects. And they are joined on their already cramped stage by yet another agent: traffic planning. Bicycle traffic plays a crucial role in the work done by all three and can provide the key to success. The exhibition shows what bicycle infrastructure needs to look like if it is to help persuade yet more people to get on their bike in the future. Projects from all across the world make the case for gently Reclaiming the City. In addition, select cities such as Copenhagen, New York or Oslo are presented — these show how the path towards a more sustainable and social city can lead via planning a bike- friendly one.
The project is supported by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) with funds available for the implementation of the National Cycling Plan 2020.
